  1. Low Loss, High Average Power PM WDMs for Raman Fiber Lasers

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: AF13AT03

    We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. In Phase I, a proof of concept experiment has been demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM.

  4. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...
